i've heard similar but evidently belt mfgs dont see eye to eye on everything.. There are supposedly only three ways to measure belt length..

pitch length, outside length, and nominal length ..

but then there're catalogs that use "nominal outside length" too.. wtf is that?

I got a belt here that's marked 4L 425 and it's outside length is 42.5 inches. So the way they mark them seems to vary.

I figured as much as far as the honda belt goes.. but the bike will run on just about anything.. like i said it'll run on a skinny A belt.

I wouldn't have to pay anywhere near $60 for a serpentine belt for my Lincoln.. i think it was $25 or so. Why would anyone spend $60 for a freakin moped V belt? gotta ask them i suppose.
